The New York Knicks currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 17 basketball uniforms in our database for the New York Knicks and are working to add more to Uniform Critics. Feel free to contact us with any uniform designs for this team that we may be missing.
One of the NBA’s oldest franchises, the Knicks take pride in their blue and orange, colors that have defined New York since 1946. One of the biggest changes in recent years was the Knicks’ decision to wear black as a primary accent color specifically on their road blues in 1995.
Black stuck around as piping on New York’s white and blue homes until 2012 when the Knicks reverted back to a more classic look with a less arched “NEW YORK” wordmark and only white, orange and blue. New York’s shorts their contrasting side panels for a more traditional appearance at the knee. Arm trim on jerseys was shortened and the phrase “ONCE A KNICK, ALWAYS A KNICK” was added to the inside collar.
On New York’s current home white get up, the Knicks’ waistband is blue while numerals are orange outlined in blue. Featured in the away blue get up is an orange waistband with orange numerals outlined in white. Current jerseys resemble threads worn by the Knicks in the late 1980s and early 90s.
The franchise’s most dramatic uniform alteration came in 1979 when colors were switched to maroon and navy blue with the “KNICKS” wordmark appearing below the jersey numeral for the only time in history. Thankfully, the awkward scheme lasted just three seasons and was switched back to orange and blue in 1983.
The Knicks have worn several alternate jerseys in recent years including a green alternate on St. Patrick’s Day in 2006 and an orange monochrome with blue lettering style on Christmas Day in 2012.
